Re: passenger side of the motor running 20 degrees hotter than driver side

Okay... guess the question and answer changed.... Dual exhaust won't matter.



Follow your changes....... Loud exhaust just make it harder to pinpoint. :)

Sounds like a flathead running... but you never know. I like that sound.

reusing exhaust manifolds gaskets are not advisable.

Rod or crankshaft problems usually don't tick. they slap/thunk.


Been thrown off a few times by the fuel pump rod doing it's job. If your looking for a sound, you'll find it. I do like that...

An Exhaust leak does sound a lot like a lower end "tick".


Did you have the "tick" before the change?


Everytime you make a change, observe. A engine log of changes doesn't hurt. I keep one...
